DAVIDIALUK ALASUA AMITTU (1910-1976)
"This is Kajjutaijuk, one of the most dreaded monsters in Eskimo mythology. A huge female ogre with enormous tattoed face and breasts and genitalia growing from her cheeks and cleft chin, and huge stumpy legs creating thunder as she approaches unwary Eskimos whom she devours with relish."
Patrick Furneaux, Leo Rosshandler, Arts of the Eskimo: Prints, Signum Press, Montreal, 1974, page 140
